Okay, we’ve all heard the saying, “You will only get out of something what you put into it.” It’s common, it’s accurate, and there isn’t much more to say about it. Or is there?
That saying applies to life, school, and work; however it’s very general. So now let’s look at it another way so we can being to understand how to get more out of life starting now.
The truth is that the vast majority of people “in” life, school, or work” are not “into” life, school, or work.
The hard truth is that the difference between people who get very little out of life, school, or work, and those who get a lot, is that some people understand the transformation which occurs between the following two words and some don’t.
Those words are:
IN vs. INTO
“In” means we physically show up and do what we’re told.
“Into” means that we are completely immersed: mentally, emotionally, and physically with what we’re doing.
Now, with that said who do you think is more likely to become successful?
Is it the person who is “IN” the activity, or the person who is “INTO” it?
Stay with me now, this gets a little deeper.
Just because we go to school does not automatically make us a student.
Just because we sell something does not automatically make us a salesperson.
Just because we play an instrument does not automatically make us a musician.
Just because we’re IN a profession does not automatically make us a professional.
Real students, sales people, musicians, and professionals are INTO what they do so much that they have developed the important skill of being able to immerse themselves mentally, emotionally, and physically in their craft.
And that’s why they get more out of life.
Being IN something does not guarantee we will get anything OUT OF it. Just showing up and doing what we’re told will almost never make us successful.
Ultimately the only way we will ever get much OUT OF something is if we are completely INTO it.
In the end, being INTO something doesn’t take skill at all, it just takes heart. We simply need to decide that we’re going to be INTO IT, and then do it.
That’s ultimately how to get more out of life while further tapping into our inborn power.
This will bring us closer to living as the most complete version of ourselves immediately.
